i try to display a font awesome icon in a datatable field like:

Code: Select all

    <i class="fa fa-fw fa-venus"></i>
Now if i try to select a row by clicking into the field (on the font awesome icon) the select event is not triggered.

I use Primefaces version 6.2.12

thanks guys

I think your issue may be related to this one:

Related to which jquery selectors are being used to detect selection. Read through that thread there is a suggested fix of adding add style class "ui-c" to make it work?
